    try carplan wonder wheels, its real strong stuff, get the bottle though not the spray..it comes with a brush and a cap to put the liquid in, be careful not to use too much though because it is strong.

    Try a product called bilberry wheel cleaner. non acidic and can be diluted to different ratios. It really is a spot on product.

    You may even need some aggressive clay.

    Be very carefull with wonder wheels mate. It is good stuff but harsh, if you have any imperfections in the wheel it will trash em!

    I would use something a little more gentle if I were you, like a turtle wax product for example.
